We really enjoyed the place, breath taking views, swimming pool and morning runs to Anghiari town and back, as well as a wonderful guide owner offered us including the key information about villa and useful tips. We have traveled quite a lot, but this was the first time, when we received such a detailed booklet. Definitely a place to be!

The house was amazing. We took day-trips throughout the region and cooked dinner at the house nightly. Pool was a welcome addition to hot days in Tuscany. Anna gave us a list of amazing places to check out in the region. We are already planning our trip back!

Poggiodoro is a fantastic restored house that easily accommodated our party of six for two weeks. The house along with the back yard and pool provided a great environment to relax and enjoy the peaceful country side. The village of Anghiari, which is about a 30 minute walk, is lovely and we really enjoyed getting to know the local residents and restaurant and shop owners. Anna’s restaurant recommendations were spot on as well. Thanks Anna and Daniele for a fantastic two weeks!
